Flint - an ancient sacred stone

Striped flint - tumbled
Stone diameter approx. 30mm

Flint is a cryptocrystalline form of the quartz mineral. During the Stone Age, flint was widely used for making stone tools and making fire. The use of flint in the manufacture of stone tools dates back over three million years. Flint is usually dark gray, black, green, white, or brown in color and has a glassy or waxy appearance.

Symbol meaning:

Flint has been sacred since the beginning of time. It is said to be a powerful balancer and purifier and to bring the support of the gods to one's endeavours. Flint has been used since time immemorial to escort the dead to the next world, as it is believed to invite guides and companions on the journey. Flint is a protective stone and is said to reduce nightmares.

Spiritually, flint is thought to sharpen the soul, cutting away all that is outdated and left behind. Flint is believed to create an anchor for shamanistic journeys in which the purpose is to identify one's own soul. It symbolizes deep masculinity, while also offering a strong connection to mother earth to connect with wise femininity and the power of the priestesses. The combination of flint and nummite has been used in some belief systems to ward off negative entities.
